In particular, the Asia-Pacific region offers an increasingly impressive portfolio of location options that are supported by generous incentives, robust local infrastructures, production-friendly legal environments and an appetite for your production business. We have intimate knowledge of how the production pipeline works in this region, so we are able to navigate the legal requirements and bureaucratic systems on your behalf.

In the development or pre production phase, our on-point Location Assessments take the research burden off you, so that you can focus on the content. The GFS Location Assessment collates information on incentives, tax implications, currency, employer obligations, logistics, production infrastructure, climate and terrain, and relevant geopolitical issues on any location, in a document that you can use to assist on decisions about your content and your budget.
